A new user type has been added with Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 R2. Self Service user type will enable users that only require very limited access to the system as a less expensive option to perform tasks such as entering payroll time, entering project time and expenses, or creating a requisition.

  • Employees can view there W2:

Employees can now view and print their own W2. This new feature is available as part of Time Management self-service.

The Payables Transaction Approval workflow type will allow you to submit and approve each transaction in the Payables Transaction Entry window. It is available through the email notification and navigation lists. This is in addition to the existing PM Batch Approval workflow type.

  • All in One Document Viewer – Purchasing:

Microsoft Dynamics GP has a newly designed window that enable users to view related purchasing documents in the same window.  Accessible from the Vendor Maintenance window, many purchasing inquiry windows, Navigation lists and even the Home Page this window will save users time in searching for all relevant information for a purchasing document.  By selecting the checkbox for one document the window redisplays all columns with only the related documents.  For example, select a purchase order and then only the receipts, invoices, payments, and returns related to that PO are displayed.

In addition there is a Filter icon that allows users to select open and/or historical or saved vs. posted documents in the Purchasing All in One Document View window.  The options are specific to each column and saved per user allowing users to customize what they want to see.  Specific searches are also enabled in the filter window to narrow down the search results.  The clear filter icon with the red x will clear all filters and reset to the defaults.
